8 Pound and Eliot Alec Marsh and Annarose Steinke i Ezra Pound e y Th ear 2015 was a strong one for Pound studies. The centennial of Cathay, Pound’s epochal book of Chinese poems, has occasioned two books, while David Moody concluded his Pound biograp. he E Thy zra Pound Society continues its bibliographic, digitizing, and annotative work as well as maintaining its “Make It New” site for reviews and short articles. a. Biography This year David Moody completed his monumental three-volume biography, Ezra Pound Poet: A Portrait of the Man and His Work (Oxford), with the publication of The Tragic Years, 1939–1972 . This title signals unmistakably that Moody has constructed Pound’s life as a tragedy with the poet as tragic hero. Dorothy Pound is his antagonist; Moody’s is ultimately a domestic traged y as envisioned, say, by Edward Albee, Eugene O’Neill, or Tennessee Williams, rather than the world historical tragedy The Cantos seem to imply. The terms of the tragedy are expressed by the dilemma of the Pounds’ children.
